Awards Policy

In recent years Carleton graduate students have won a large number of external scholarships, such as SSHRC fellowships, NSERC scholarships, and Ontario Graduate Scholarships. In addition, the University itself provides generous support, and the majority of graduate students receive funds from this source.

Holders of awards must pay regular tuition fees unless otherwise stated.

Full-time graduate students at Carleton University are expected to comply with the following procedures:

  • Any full-time graduate student who accepts an award that is not directly administered by Carleton University must immediately inform his/her departmental chair and the Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies in writing. This requirement applies to any awards or assistance offered by any agency or institution.
  • Any full-time graduate student who accepts part-time employment outside the University is required to inform his/her departmental chair and the Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies, in writing, prior to undertaking the work.

Application Deadlines

March 1 is the last date for receipt of completed applications for admission (including transcripts, letters of reference, etc.) from candidates who wish to be considered for the initial award, announced April 1, of financial assistance administered by Carleton University.

Candidates whose applications are received after the March 1 deadline may be eligible for the award of a scholarship and assistantship by reversion.

Method of Payment

All awards administered by Carleton University will be paid on a monthly basis, with the first installment on September 30.

Students are urged to note the above payment dates and be prepared to be financially self-sufficient during the month of September.

Other Awards

A number of national and provincial organizations award fellowships and scholarships which are tenable at Carleton University (for example, SSHRC, OGS, NSERC, etc.). Some application procedures and regulations concerning fellowships awarded by agencies other than Carleton University are given in the description of each of these awards.

In addition, a large number of foundations, companies, fraternal organizations, and other agencies offer fellowships and scholarships.

The Faculty of Graduate Studies maintains an information system to assist the Carleton community in identifying funding opportunities for graduate studies. The information system is available at the Web site:  http://www.carleton.ca and contains information on agency deadlines and the application procedures.

Eligibility

In the case of fellowships, grants, scholarships, etc., for which students must make application, it is the individual student�s responsibility to establish his/her eligibility. Should it become known that a student is unqualified for any reason, he/she must return the funds already received, with the University assuming no responsibility.

Departments recommending students for internal awards must accept full responsibility for the eligibility of their nominees.

Students are urged to consult carefully the brochures and announcements which specify the conditions associated with tenure of individual awards. This information is available in the office of the Faculty of Graduate Studies and in departmental offices.


Awards Administered by Carleton University


The awards administered by Carleton University are derived from a variety of sources. Throughout the years, a number of individuals and organizations have contributed substantial funds to the University, through bequests and donations, in order to help support students in various fields of study.

It is not always possible to identify precisely the sources of various donations and bequests (often small, but most important in the aggregate) from which any graduate student�s financial support has been constructed. These sums, together with the assistantship funds made available from the University budget, make up the reservoir from which the Carleton scholarships and assistantships are drawn.

In the following cases, however, either because of the relative importance of the contribution or because of the fact that it is earmarked for a specific type of student or program, we do identify the external source from which the award has originated.

The maximum loan a student can receive in one academic year is usually the total amount of his or her allowable educational costs. Application forms and further information can be obtained by contacting the Awards office at Carleton or the Student Awards Branch of the Ministry of Education and Training, Fellowship Section, P.O. Box 4500, 189 Red River Road, 4th Floor, Thunder Bay, Ontario, P7B 6G9.

Students wishing to have applications processed in time for fall registration must ensure that completed forms are submitted to the Awards office by July 1.

Canadian citizens or landed immigrants (permanent residents) from the territories and all other provinces except Quebec may qualify for assistance from the Canada Student Loans Plan through their home province. The loan is interest free while the student is enrolled full time. Some provinces also make available non-repayable grant assistance along with this federal loan.

The Awards office disburses general information on the various provincial aid schemes, but application forms and details on individual programs must be obtained from the authorities in the home province. Deadline dates vary but, generally speaking, it is wise to apply for financial assistance through the appropriate provincial department before June 30.

Applications from students for assistance from the province of Quebec should be made directly to the Awards office. Deadline dates for submission of applications are May 31 for all students who submitted an application for the previous school year and June 30 for all students who did not submit an application for the previous school year. In order to be accepted by the Department of Education, all applications must be coded by the Awards office.

The above government assistance programs are subject to change.
